What We Do at PSC
We are an approved Home Office target shooting club. We are always seeking to develop the club by enhancing the facilities and making the clubroom and ranges more accommodating for all members. We welcome younger shooters and ladies to apply for membership. Since we cannot be responsible for other people's children we ask that juniors (under 18) are accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian or a responsible adult over 21. Parents, guardians, or responsible adults need not be members but must sign in on each visit and will not be allowed to participate in any shooting unless they are members or probationary members.
We have disabled members who shoot regularly and we are constantly striving to improve our facilities for all disabled people with an interest in shooting. We have postal league competitions available for bench rest .22 rim fire. Most people can manage a sitting position with the fore-end of the rifle supported on the bench and this event has made it possible for older and disabled shooters to enter a competition on equal terms.
We have clay pigeon sessions for probationers, members and their guests, on various Saturdays through the year which are proving to be very popular. We have club guns available to borrow. Practical shotgun sessions are run on the purpose built range behind the butt stops and are great fun. Anyone can have a go as we cater for 3 shot semi auto guns and we have a club gun available to borrow.
We have a competition specifically for spring powered airguns and the scoring system was devised to ensure everyone has an equal chance of success whatever their ability. A number of members shoot gallery rifles (like John Wayne's Winchester) in postal competitions. Our 100yard range is certified for full bore rifle and many members shoot larger calibres on this range.
To join us, visit the club on the last Sunday of the month between 11am and 2pm. No appointment necessary - just turn up on the day (bring photo I.D. with you). We ask that disabled persons are given priority for spaces in the car park adjacent to the clubroom. When this is full we have an overflow car park alongside the full-bore range.
